The Wild Horses are icons of American Culture. They are symbols of freedom and are the elemental bridge between the ancient rhythms of nature and the contemporary human being. In today's world, we simply throw away our cars, toys, furniture, clothes, and yes, even our animals when we tire of them. No one is to blame. We just forgot what nature presented to us. As civilization closes in on them, the Wild Horses' struggle for survival intensifies. Our governments have turned their backs on the beautiful creatures and failed to execute their responsibilities for care.
The Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund is an all volunteer Nevada non-profit organization. It was organized in 2008 with the mission to protect and preserve the Wild Horses that settle during the winter months in the foothills surrounding Hidden Valley. For the past 19 years, volunteers have monitored herd health, grazing availability, provided attention to sick and injured horses and foals, aided in state run adoption processes, and installed and mended fencing and cattle guards. Other volunteers are involved in ensuring federal and state departments are working within the statutes that provide protection and care for the Wild Horses.
We welcome you to our website and hope you enjoy the photos, reports of our endeavors, and the information concerning the Wild Horses. Our values are embedded in the traditions of the Old West and the animal that made it all possible. As one of our associate members said, "I want to be able to show my grandchildren the soul of one of these majestic wild horses, not a photograph of what was."
